Additional information about this, Prince vinyl art.

Prince – The Artist

Prince ( 1958 – 2016) was an American singer, songwriter, musician, record producer, and filmmaker. Prince was known for his eclectic work, flamboyant stage presence, extravagant fashion sense and use of makeup, and wide vocal range. Prince was also a multi-instrumentalist; considered a guitar virtuoso, he was also skilled at playing the drums, percussion, bass, keyboards, and synthesiser. His innovative music integrated a wide variety of styles, including funk, rock, R&B, new wave, soul, psychedelia, and pop. He sold over 100 million records worldwide, making him one of the best-selling music artists of all time.

Sign o’ The Times – The Song

‘Sign o The Times’  (stylised as “Sign “☮︎” the Times”) is the lead single from American musician Prince’s 1987 album of the same name. Prince performed all vocals & instruments on the song. “Sign o’ the Times” was reportedly written and composed on a Sunday, when Prince usually wrote his most introspective songs. The song proved popular upon release, topping the charts in both he UK and the US. Despite being negative in nature, the song was originally intended for two separate Prince albums meant to be released in 1986, that were both shelved: Dream Factory and Crystal Ball. The single’s cover features new band member Cat Glover posing with a large heart covering her face, and on the back of the cover, posing with Prince’s guitar.

The Heart- The Shape

This record has been modelled into a loving heart of a style similar to the heart on the records picture sleeve. The heart shape and its meaning has evolved over hundreds of years. Nowadays it means love but before the 13th and 14th centuries it was generally drawn for decorative purposes. People at that time thought of our hearts as books of memory and believed feelings for the beloved were somehow written on your heart.
